Project Community Connect
En espanol: Connectando Comunidades con Recursos y Apoyo
Project Community Connect is a one day event for connecting communities through resources and support. This community event offers a one-stop location for direct services to residents of Scott County and Carver County who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
This community event offers a one-stop location for direct services to residents of Scott and Carver counties who are “living on little,” those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The CAP Agency, along with over 100 community partners, provides free healthcare services, employment assistance education, legal assistance, veteran services, housing information, haircuts, and assistance obtaining birth certificates, driver licenses and identification cards. Resources and information are available from agencies that provide food support, energy assistance, educational opportunities, social services, mental health and chemical dependency services.
To make this event accessible for all, transportation to the event and childcare at the event are provided.
How You Can Help
Project Community Connect is funded entirely by donations and is organized and staffed by Volunteers from the community. In the past, PCC has received strong support from social service agencies, the faith community, businesses and organizations. We rely on a variety of Service Providers, including attorneys, healthcare providers, dental care providers, hairdressers, and staff from local agencies to provide direct services at the event. Many volunteers are needed the day of the event. PCC also relies on Supporters to help sponsor the event or donate to PCC and to provide products that are given out to PCC guests.
Donations to PCC are 100% tax deductible. If you would like to write a check, please make the check payable to the CAP Agency and write ‘PCC’ in the memo line.
